Australian YA: Meet Lili Wilkinson and Green Valentine

Friday, September 25th, 2015

  Thanks for speaking to Boomerang Books, Lili.  Where are you based and how involved in the YA literary community are you?

The Problem with Pink

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

Remember a couple of years back, when pink shirts became mainstream for blokes? It was a fashion revolution.
